Livia Lazzari, Jewellery Designer

Voodoo design: faux-bijoux with tough, wild and rebellious characteristics

Education: Jewellery Design at the IED (European Institute of Design), Central Saint-Martins College of Art & Design in London

Brand Features: Voodoo design springs up from the need to free jewellery from the classical sense of valuable object, linked to the use of precious and expensive material, providing it with a new sort of metropolitan, strong and rebellious character. The idea behind the creation lies in the wake of the most topical design where the uniqueness of the object resides in man’s creative and productive skills rather than in the rarity of materials.

Creates: Her collections are a blend of tribal atmospheres, pirate tales, a fascination for shamanic rituals and a Gothic mood. Earrings, necklaces, pendants, devant de corsage, bracelet are made with natural materials such as wood, bone, leather, coarse stones and feathers discovered around Europe during the constant quest for new ideas and new inspirations.

Black “All Stars”, that I bought when I was at the senior high school!
Ice-cream with hot coffee or chocolate with whipped ice-cream?
Without a doubt a very thick chocolate with whipped ice-cream.

False hypocrite and unnatural and natural people who enjoy life.

One of those squirrels that can jump from a tree to another one, I don’t know their name but they are so funny!!!
What’s the first thing you think about when you wake up?
I often think about the dream I had, I really love dreaming…
Wedge-heeled or stiletto heeled shoes?
Wedge-heels! with stiletto heels you become sensual but you lost your liking because you’re too much focused on pain!
From where you are the world seems to you like…
A jungle, you can see only trees!
What do you have on your night table?
If places reflect the personality of their inhabitants things are looking black for me …. My night table, that is not a real night table but a recycled piano stool, as well as my room is a pile of clothes, feathers, press clippings and chocolates wrappers….
You have the absolute power for a day, the first thing you would do?
That’s a good question! Maybe I will go back in time, and I will change something , I’m not sure I would do everything I have done!
